About The Webinar

Unfortunately it is not possible to perform surgery without the risk of complications. It is therefore important to recognize which complications may occur and to know how to reduce the chance of them occurring. Measures can be taken in patient preparation, decision-making and surgical technique to reduce the risk. Owners should be warned of potential complications, including the incidence and severity, prior to consenting to surgery.

In this webinar I will discuss the most common complications of all surgeries; haemorrhage, surgical site infections, dehiscence and seroma formation. In particular I will consider the complications associated with performing intestinal surgery, ovariohysterectomy and removal of skin masses. The webinar will consist of surgical photos and videos throughout to illustrate the complications that can occur
